Becoming Real

I was graced with the most beautiful gift of falling upon the perfect quote for this perfect time. If you need me, I’ll be under our tree, becoming as real as I can be. 

‘You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.

    Dear Katie, You look so peaceful lying in that hammock. I have never had cancer but have experienced it as an observer through close friends and family. Here is my favorite quote – and if you ever need a bigger knot or helping hanging on just give me a call :). 406-239-5049. I’ll even drive from Missoula to Bozeman…. The qoute: When you believe you have come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on! Don’t know who thought up that one. Take care. You’ll get through this with the love from your family and friends.
